Collectively, all those New Haven organizations will soon have $339,000 more to spend on kids.
That’s how much money the state Judicial Branch is sending our city’s way through its “Youth Service Programs” grants.
New Haven’s state legislators announced the grants Wednesday afternoon in a joint press release.
“Securing this funding was crucial for us because we understand how important it is for children to feel supported and empowered, especially in communities like New Haven where our youth face so much adversity,” the release quoted State Sen. Gary Winfield saying. State Rep. Robyn Porter called the groups “the backbone of our city.”
